About Me


Meet Chris Esbati

Chris grew up in Colwood where he attended Belmont Secondary High School. After graduating Chris went on to Camosun College to complete his degree in Business, majoring in Human Resource Management and Leadership. Prior to beginning his career in Real Estate, Chris worked in the trades and completed two years of carpentry, followed by opening and managing a landscaping company servicing the entire lower island. Chris always had Real Estate as his long-term goal, motivated by his grandparents who both worked as realtors for RE/MAX Camosun.

What My Clients Are Saying


"Chris has assisted us twice with the sale and purchase of properties. Both times he was very helpful and went above and beyond to find us exactly what we were looking for. He also gave us some great tips to help us sell quickly at a good price. Chris is an all around great guy, and I would not hesitate to recommend him for all your Real Estate needs"

Jackie & Aidan Gordon

"Chris was professional, communicative, and efficient in helping us sell our condo and find a house within the very short window of time that we had. He set up showings right away, was very responsive to requests and ultimately, sold our condo and found us a great house in a neighborhood that we love! Thanks, Chris!"

Miranda Noyes and Matt Fisher

“Chris has been a pleasure to work with during our three recent real estate transactions. He is extremely professional, reassuring, and has lots of great advice for homeowners. During the unusual year and economy we've been having, Chris was always optimistic and encouraging, with a reliably sound knowledge of the local real estate market. We can highly recommend him”

Dave & Lesley Preston

“Chris was willing to show us homes during our visit for a job interview without any guarantee we would be in the market. We are impressed with his manner, always listening before talking. We appreciate his realistic market appraisal, he appears to be working to build a relationship, not just a short-term sale. His understanding of the building process and what to look for, particularly in new construction, gave us great comfort in our decisions. Chris was very responsive every time we tried to contact him and made the intense time of "closing the deal" quite manageable. We were so impressed with Chris during our first house purchase that we decided to work with him again to sell it and buy our second house without considering any others”.

Brad & Tiina Aitchsion

“As a recent client of Chris' I had a goal of a quick sale in the pursuit of a dream property in another province. I very much appreciated that Chris wanted to know the goal and gave me a straight line to reach it, no hesitation right to the checks in the boxes with a clear timeline. Chris was a great teammate in completing his tasks as needed and keeping me accountable to mine. During the entire process he made himself available for questions and was quick to pivot when challenges presented themselves. His experience, knowledge of the market and direct approach resulted in the quick sale of my previous home. I think it would be of service to my military family to mention that Chris is also registered through BGRS and can support you through that process. Great experience from start to finish.”

Chris & Jules Cooper

“As first time homebuyers, Chris made the process so easy, simple and stress free. He was there every step of the way guiding us through the whole process, and made us feel completely at ease. We had a tight timeline to work with and Chris was able to fit everything in and find us our perfect house. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an all around amazing Realtor“

Erika Jamieson & Jason Martin

“I can’t speak highly enough about our experience! Chris was professional, personable, and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure getting to work with him to find me and my family the perfect home. We will be working with him in the future and recommending him to others. Thanks Chris!”

Nik & Jess Chandler

“Chris has been so helpful in both the sale of our home and our search for a new one. He was incredibly patient with us and always went above and beyond to help us with the process and to explain the things we didn't understand about the housing market. We're so happy with the service and patience Chris provided us with some of the biggest decisions of our lives! “

Morgan Rozon & Patrick MacAvoy

“I recently hired Chris for the sale of my home in Shawinigan Lake, wary of whether it would sell for enough to follow through with my decision to put it out on the market. Within 1 hour of Chris listing my property I had multiple offers for full asking price without even viewing the property. For me this was very exciting, but with Chris having the knowledge and expertise that he does, he advised me to wait and see how the market played out after the first showing. The day of the showing, I had 5 offers come in all for well over asking price. Chris reviewed every offer and strategized which one would benefit me most and work with my time line for closing, and gave all the advise I needed to make my decision. My house was sold within a week of it being listed! I had two tenants both upstairs and downstairs, throughout the process of setting up viewings and coordinating inspections, Chris took care of all communication with my tenants, and with me living in a different city this was a huge stress reliver for me. I would highly recommend using Chris as your realtor, he is proficient, professional, personable, and has a personality that naturally draws in people’s attention! This was a 5 star service for me in every aspect”

Stefanie Vennard

"Working with Chris was an absolute pleasure, and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision to have him sell our condo and help us find a house. This was our first time selling, and he made the process very easy for us. His professionalism, communication, and knowledge of the real estate market was beyond what we could have asked for. Chris was always available to talk to us whenever we needed, making both the buying and selling experience easy and enjoyable. We would highly recommend Chris and will be calling him in the future if we decide to sell again!"
